ClarkDietrich enters joint venture

WARREN — Ohio-based ClarkDietrich and Hadley Group, a global cold-rolled steel company, are partnering to form CDH Custom Roll Form in Warren.

Offices and manufacturing facilities are expected to be fully operational by June 1. The joint-venture company manufactures component and custom products for companies in the North American steel roll-form products market.

CDH has state-of-the-art roll-forming technology, internal testing, lab facilities and in-house stamping and slitting capabilities. It also provides 3D printing and prototyping services.

“CDH will be hiring in 2020, but we don’t have an exact hiring goal at this time,” said Jack Pacalo, CDH president. “We will be poised for rapid growth over the next 12 to 18 months as our production lines increase and our business expands.”

ClarkDietrich, which manufactures and has services for cold-formed steel framing and drywall / plastering finishing systems, is headquartered in West Chester near Cincinnati in southwest Ohio. It has manufacturing and engineering and technical services offices across the U.S.

Hadley is based in the U.K. It employs more than 800 across the globe at manufacturing facilities in Europe, the Middle East and Southeast Asia.
